Pretty stupid but as a child, I remember loving Morgan's horror collection and being totally jealous that he got to sneak out and go to midnight screenings of horror movies. Funny that whoever the director of the movie was thought it was so bad that he opted to change the credit to Alan Smithee - it's no worse than most of the other movies made at the time.
Love Jon Cryer and I have seen this years and years ago...totally hilarious. This was super funny and the story was pretty good. Total 80's Movie and I wish they would come out with this on DVD already...I'd be the first to buy it lol
One of my personal favourite feel good movies, 'Morgan Stewart's Coming Home' is an underrated teen comedy about a young man's attempts to bond with two perfect strangers - his own parents! Jon Cryer is delightful in the title role and he is offered great support from Viveka Davis as spunky love interest Emily and Lynne Redgrave as Morgan's decidedly non-touchy feely mother Nancy. Can Morgan and Emily teach Tom and Nancy that family is just as important as a political career?
Morgan is a boarding school kid who collects horror movie memorabilia. Suddenly his parents invite him home, but only to be seen as part of their political campaign. "Insert kid here." He decides to make them be a "real" family. Various hilarity ensues. Surprisingly well developed characters and comedic performances, even if the plot drags a bit by the time the chase scene rolls around. It's worth renting.
